to cut down a dangerous deficit. why can't anyone in dc come to the table with a simple obvious proposal? >> obama: if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on healthcare and revenues from closing loopholes we can solve the deficit issue. >> john: joining me now is wahini varra, california politics reporter for the wall street journal. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> does that mean that he's doing things right? >> he had decent approving ratings after a while. but after this effort to pass taxes, his approval ratings went up. he's more popular now than he has ever been in california, a little bit surprisingly. >> when you consider all the negative stereotypes that we heard groaning up. when i was growing up he was governor moon beam, and how unbalanced he was, quite the opposite of now. governor brown did a whole lot of cutting, are the people of california glossing over that? >> i think they may be. the most recent thing that happened was that californians raised taxes after jerry brown passed it. it's been in the news. that's what people are aware of.
deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> bill: so the question -- so why should the president entertain this notion that the debt ceiling which republicans voted for 19 times under george w. bush without a peep, you know, why should he entertain the notion that suddenly this is a matter of big negotiations? >> well, he's trying to say that he shouldn't but unfortunately the house republicans have the majority in congress. unfortunately for him, so when he says he doesn't want to debate it and negotiate over it, he is running up against the fact that people who have the power in the house do want to debate it and that can cause problems. he certainly is pushing this idea here to try to remove this from the realm of what he wants and the american people see as rational debate. he used a lot of words yesterday that were very strong to try to make people see this as what he called an absurd way of approaching this. he talked about this being like holding a gun to your head or ransom. this
, is look it would add to the deficit whether you were north of south, it doesn't matter. we have only paid for a small amount in terms of offsets for any of these storms. from 2003 to now, in 2003 we had a rule under different circumstances, we had to find some money or find the revenue to pay for it. >> stephanie: right. >> but this is an emergency. we are 80 days into this now. you know how many homes have been damaged and destroyed? i think it's like close to 350,000 homes. >> stephanie: yeah. >> the power outages in new jersey, two -- over 2.5 million no power. i mean i go down the whole list. >> stephanie: right. and it's winter back east encase encase -- in case people haven't noticed. it used to be we are just americans. but look at yesterday, look at yesterday, when there was a tragedy, we used to try to figure out how we come to the table. literally there are people accusing the president of being like saadam hussein, and using children as human shields. >> yeah, they will stop at nothing. we have more ideologues now in the congress than we had in the 112
the things that really matter like how the deficit's been destroying the country since january 21, 2009. how zor owes is a hungarian term for class traitor and
will happen. he said to congress we'll have to figure out a way not to increase deficit. it will have to come with spending cuts. >> cenk: more austerity, i wouldn't do any more of it. but he also talked about guns. >> he was asked about guns. i think what we'll hear him talk about hear here now but 836 people now since the newtown tragedy has died. that's almost as if we have woken up for 32 days and there was a nu town every single day. >> cenk: every time we update it i get surprised. oh, my god, it's been that many more and it's insanity. i think a great majority of the american people are on to it. it is a majority, 52% of americans are now more supportive of gun control since newtown. we're making progress, of course it depends on what is in it. >> he has the option and he's talking about using the executive order. here is the president. >> obama: well, my understanding of the vice president is going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence. some of them will require legislation, some of them i can accomplish through executive action. >> cenk: so the executi
. by creating jobs we reduce the deficit. >> jennifer: i'm take taking it as an encouraging sign that the tea party can be moved by public voices. if they can be moved on the debt ceiling of all things, maybe they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize that 60% of our discretionary money go to the defense. wewe need and want a strong defense, with you but quite frankly out dateed cold war-era weapons can be taken off the table. there are many, many ways we can save money with defense in our pentagon budget, and never even touch anything that would affect our troops and their benefits and their families or national defense. nothing is off of the table and we have to under that defense can't be off of the table. we have to keep defense on the table as par

that number is. it's more than a trillion. we are working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it. second, the administration does not support blowing up planets. third, why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars that could be exploited by a one-man starship. if you pursue a career in a math relead field, the force will be us. the death star's power to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force. bravo to the white house for putting that out. it's filled well inside references to star wars movies. we tweeted a link where you can read the whole thing. blue rapid says it's $850 quadrillion by the way. now you know how fast it would cost. >> somebody studied how much it would cost. they have hot links throughout the article. >> it's amazing. >> it's a great piece. >>@bp show on twitter. >> all right. >> death star. >> we have a death star. we have no trillion dollar coin. all of the fun stuff. over the weekend. >> franklin mint. >> this is "the bill press show." going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that
